Miriam Johnston began playing the piano when she was 6 years old, and has taught piano since 2015. She is currently studying communications and media, which she is using to inform and shape her work with piano students.
"I have always loved piano because it lets me be independent, and the time I spend playing goes so quickly! I strive to guide my students until they are able to achieve the same freedom at the piano that I enjoy so much. One of the most exciting things for me about piano is being able to play whatever you want, when you want.
To help students achieve this ability, I emphasize the importance of sight reading so that students can not only enjoy lessons where they spend time exploring and improving, but that they can play on their own at home and develop their own musicality. I want to build a solid musical foundation for all my students so they can begin their relationship with this beautiful instrument. I always appreciate feedback from students and parents so that I can tailor my approach to each student. Every day I strive to find new techniques, activities and challenges to teach my students and to learn them myself!"
